The End of an Era

British Airways Farewell UK Tour started on Monday 20th October. The aircraft visited Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Manchester and Belfast, before heading back to London for the final time on the 24th when it was joined by the inbound aircraft from the final ever supersonic BA0002 service from New York.

Each day Concorde left London Heathrow in the morning and visited one of five destinations, then returned to London in the evening. Whilst in the cities, British Airways opened an exclusive Concorde Exhibition, just for that day.

The lucky passengers were chosen in a competition run by British Airways.
